Properties of Electric Charge Atomic Structure: Composed of three main particles: 1.Proton 2.Neutron 3.Electron 2

Things to Remember: Everything is made of atoms.Everything is made of atoms. Electrons can move from one atom to another atom.Electrons can move from one atom to another atom. 3

Static Electricity The temporary building up of charge on an object. Some atoms hold e - more tightly than others. Ex. Your shoes and Carpet 4

If you walk across a carpet, electrons move from the rug to you (because of friction). Now you have extra electrons. Touch a door knob and ZAP! The electrons move from you to the knob. You get a shock. 5

Static electricity is actually an imbalance in the amounts of positive and negative charges in the surface of an object. 6

Three ways to induce a charge in an object 1.Friction 2.Induction 3.Conduction (Contact) 7

Charging by Induction Involves the charging of one object by another without direct contact. 9 8

9

involves the direct contact of a charged object to a neutral object. Charging by Conduction 10

An uncharged Electroscope A charged electroscope. Detecting an Electric Charge 11

13 Electroscope helps detect electric charge

Electrostatics Lab

Electric Current The constant flow of electrons. 14

Transfer of Electric Charge Some materials allow electric charge to move freely: Conductors Ex: copper, aluminum Semiconductors: In their natural state they are insulators: Material can be added to the material to increase its conductivity Ex: Silicon and Germanium Some materials do not allow electric charge to move freely: Insulators Ex: glass, rubber Has to do with the molecular structure of the material 15 Clip

Conductors Insulators Conductors : Gold, Silver, Copper, Iron, Lead, Salt Water. Insulators : Plastics, Glass, Dry Air, Wood. 16

Voltage This is called voltage, which is the “Push” that causes electrons to flow. It’s electrical “Pressure”. Charges flow from high voltage to low voltage. Measured in Volts (V). For electrons to flow there must be a potential difference between to places. 17

18

Current how many electrons The measure of how many electrons per second are flowing through the wire is the amperage (A). 20

Electrical current The # of e - is called current (unit = Ampere or Amp. ) Electrical current is like the amount or volume of water flowing through the hose. Water in a HoseDC in a WireElectrical Units pressurepotential (V)Volts volumecurrent (I)Amps frictionresistance (R)Ohms 21

22

Resistance The tendency for a material to oppose the flow of electrons. Different material have different amounts of resistance to the flow of electrons. The unit of resistance is ohm. 23

Ex: gold, silver, and copper have low resistance, which means that current can flow easily through these materials. Glass, plastics, and wood have very high resistance, which means that current cannot pass through these materials easily.Resistance 24

Resistance in Wires Thick wire Vs. Thin Wire Thin wires provide more resistance than do thick wires Resistance also depends on temperature, usually increasing as the temperature increases resistance Resistance in wires produces a loss of energy (usually in the form of heat), so materials with no resistance produce no energy loss when currents pass through them.

Electric Circuits A pathway for electrons to flow. Electrons follow the path of least resistance. 26

27

Open Circuits 28 Electrons follow the path of least resistance

Closed Circuits 28 Electrons follow the path of least resistance

Series Circuit The current has only one path to follow. 30 Electrons follow the path of least resistance

Parallel Circuits Two or more branches for the current to flow. 31 Electrons follow the path of least resistance

Lab Goals: Investigate the properties of electricity and magnetism. b) Understand the relationship among voltage, resistance & current. c) Understand how to build simple series and parallel circuits.

From Lab: In a series circuit… –the current through each of the components is the same, and the total voltage in the circuit is the sum of the voltages across each component. In a parallel circuit….. –the voltage across each of the components is the same, and the total current is the sum of the currents through each component. 32.2

V=IR In a material, the current (I) is directly proportional to the voltage (V) and inversely proportional to the resistance (R). V R I= OR 25

a. What is the total voltage across the bulbs? b. What is the total resistance of the circuit? c. What is the current in the circuit? d. What is the voltage drop across each light bulb? e. What happens to the brightness of each bulb in a series circuit as additional bulbs are added? Why? 6V 3Ω 2A 2V

a. What is the voltage across each resistor? b. What is the current in each branch? c. What is the total current provided by the battery? The voltage is equal across all components in a parallel circuit. (Therefore, the voltage across R1 is equal to the voltage across R2 which is equal to the voltage across the battery.) The total current in the circuit is equal the sum of all individual branch currents. 12V 6 A and 4 A 10 A

Four identical light bulbs are connected in a circuit as shown below. The current is greatest through which of the light bulbs? A 1 B 2 C 3 D 4

How do batteries work? Batteries have three parts, an anode (-), a cathode (+), and the electrolyte. The cathode and anode (the positive and negative sides at either end of a traditional battery) are hooked up to an electrical circuit. The chemical reactions in the battery causes a build up of electrons at the anode. This results in an electrical difference between the anode and the cathode. You can think of this difference as an unstable build-up of the electrons. The electrons wants to rearrange themselves to get rid of this difference. But they do this in a certain way. Electrons repel each other and try to go to a place with fewer electrons. 33 Dry Cell

Wet Cell Wet Cell -uses liquids for the electrolytes, as opposed to the dry cell 34

Electric Power The rate at which electrical energy is transferred by an electric circuit. The SI unit of power is the watt Joule's Law 37

What is a kilowatt hour? How long you run an appliance. –How much energy is used? Energy used = Power (kW) x Time (hrs) E= P x t To find cost: Ex: 10¢ per kilowatt hour E x \$ 38

105 V are used to power an appliance that needs 15.0 amps. What is the power used? –1575 W =1.575kW How much energy is used when this appliance is used for 30.0 days- 24hrs a day? –1134 kW -hr If the power company charges 8¢/Kw-h, what is the cost of the energy above. \$90.72 An electric refrigerator rated 400 W operates 8 hour/day. What is the cost of energy to operate it for 30 days at 8¢/Kw-h ? 39
